believe to be a terrorist act, against our consulate in benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the attacks of september 11. these attacks do many things, but they remind us i think first of the bravery and commitment of government officials who serve in countries around the world, supporting the struggles of people in those countries, to live free. and by doing so work to improve our own national security. the attack in libya also reminds us that even though the core of al qaeda has been seriously weakened, we still face threats from an evolving and fractious set of terrorist groups and individuals united by a common ideology which is that of haven't -- violent islamist extremism. i'll have some questions to ask the three of you about the nature of the terrorist threat today and specifically with regard to the reaction to this film whether you think it has raised the threat level against any places or institutions or individuals here in the united states. reporting to us on the terrorist threat to the homeland today, i also hope you'll address other concerns such as the effort to counter h

against the film beganouts the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, but it appears to have been a well armed, well coordinateed event with indirect and direct fire from machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades. four americans were killed, including j. christopher stevens and information management officer sean smith. secretary of state hillary clinton eulogized the ambassador and defended the america's commitment to libya. >> everywhere chris and his team went in libya in a country scared by war and tyranny, they were hailed as friends and partners. the world needs more chris stevens. >> eliot: and at the white house, president obama condemned the attacks. >> obama: there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. and make no mistake, we will work with the libyan government to bring to justice the killers who attacked our people. >> eliot: but unfortunately and predictably there was a political dimension to this as well with protest against the film tuesday morning. a foreign service officer in the embassy tried to calm the situation with a tweet condemnic the
with the u.s. state department are honing in on some brand-new videotape out of benghazi, libya. and it's videotape that shows witnesses -- well, at least witnesses say -- shows ambassador chris stevens being pulled out of a charred window just moments after this attack on the u.s. consulate there last week. here's our arwa damon with that video. >> reporter: this is the first thing that he says he saw and filmed at the consulate compound. the cafeteria building up in flames. it was shortly before midnight, september 11th. the smoke so thick, the compound's main house is barely visible. and then this. after breaking through a window, men shout they have found a body. suddenly, one of them cries out, "he's alive! he's alive!" the crowd cheers. "god it great!" rushing for a car, they realize it's a foreigner. "i was filming the video, and i thought it was an american, fahed recalls, but i thought it was a driver or a security guy. i never thought it was the ambassador." it's clear from the rest of the video that the man they pulled out was ambassador christopher stevens. fahed says he was
was there was no significant demonstration going on outside that consulate area in benghazi. so she is making it sound if the extremists who were heavily armed came in and joined a ongoing big demonstration that got whipped into a frenzy and led to this attack. >> right. well, obviously there's still a lot of facts to be learned. we don't know everything yet but there is one group of people who are not at all confused by what happened and those are the people who attacked consulate and killed four americans. they know what they planned and what they did. even worse than that, as tragic as this is, is the signal that it is sending to al qaeda and terrorists and extremists all around the region, which is, that we did not have adequate security for our ambassador to libya. we didn't have adequate security for our embassy in cairo on september the 11th. and that official americans and private americans are vulnerable. tunisia is a good example. when they couldn't really take over the embassy they storm ad school across the street. they couldn't get the hard target. so they went after a soft target. i thin
